Mini Mama

Black-chinned Hummingbird

Archilochus alexandri


I was hiking down a side trail and almsot walked right past this beautiful scene. Another hummingbird buzzed me, which caused me to pause - and then I spied this mother on her nest not 5' from me. I got a couple of quick shots and moved on. On my way back up the trail, she was still there but I moved past quickly to minimize my disturbance.


It's one of my favorite moments of my trip.
